ADOPTION OF CHUBACHU STREAM (March 2017 to ongoing)
In recognition of the increasing pollution in the Chubachu stream compounded by poor waste management, the National Environment Commission Secretariat in partnership with Bhutan Red Cross Society and in collaboration with the Thimphu Thromde, Royal Society for Protection of Nature (RSPN) and Clean Bhutan decided to spearhead the adoption of the Chubachu stream along with the agencies/communities living within the buffer of the stream. The adoption was launched on March 22, 2017 in observation of the World Water Day, which was followed by a monthly mass cleaning campaign. Under the initiative, different organizations were made responsible for adopting certain stretches of the stream.
OBJECTIVES AND GOALS
- To coordinate and participate in the cleaning of the stream and to sensitize the communities on waste management.
- To identify the source of contamination and assess the extent of contamination of the Chubachu stream.

At RSPN, we believe a single grain of sand can tip the scale. You can be the grain that tips the scale towards improved environmental conditions and conservation efforts in Bhutan. RSPN has set a target to raise US$ 1.5 million for next 10 years.
